mac-aga21125yMany well known libraries such as semantic ui uses “!important” too , sucks though ...
lxmcf210565yWait 152 files? I really hope that's not all css esle I'm angry for you
Did you mean developers who wrote their own majestic-boombastic fantastic-af css because waiting for designer to make it good looking is taking too much time?
I feel you broda
jak64520205yRemplace !important to " " XD
@VirtualPhilipp you missed a wk99 tag 😝
@mac-aga yep bootstrap too.
But most of those librairies deal with both old browser compatibility and retro compatibility with their own legacy code.
Sometimes a !important is better than a breaking change.
sigfried5555y@mac-aga yeah and because of that I sometimes have to add !important to a whole class for it to work. (Because sometimes it's something small which you don't want to recompile the whole CSS files)
--help1165yFor highly important styles, use
!importanter or !importantest
Well it’s not important
ctrlz11765yCss is like priorities...
If everything is !important, nothing actually is...
waitwhat3345yYes, many times. But it had more of a "private key in a public repo" kinda feel to it.
cino405y++ your comment as this is first actual dev rant i have read in a while.
Sone devs dont seem to get how CSS selectors priority works.
voiid41945y!important == unimportant
Hey, have you ever wanted to punch a developer 8611 times before?
